Best hotels in Jersey for a Channel Islands holiday


With more hours of sunshine than anywhere else in the British Isles, Jersey is a year-round destination that is equally appealing in the height of summer as it is in the bleak mid-winter. Whether you head to this corner of the Channel Islands to play around in the sea on paddleboards, kayaks and surfboards, or to explore award-winning museums and attractions, you’re bound to have a memorable holiday.

For those interested in the island’s history, visit the Jersey War Tunnels, where exhibits tell the story of what life was like for islanders at the time of German occupation during the Second World War.

You can also visit Elizabeth Castle, which was commissioned by Sir Walter Raleigh when he was governor of Jersey at the beginning of the 17th century.

But where to stay? You might want to opt for a seaview hotel right on the golden sands of one of the island’s many beaches; a granite manor house surrounded by country walks, or perhaps somewhere in the heart of the cosmopolitan capital, St Helier.

No matter in which part of the island you choose to stay, we’ve found the best hotels in Jersey that will provide a home away from home, whatever the season.

There’s still a hint of the golden age of travel at the Grand Jersey Hotel and Spa


Standing guard over Elizabeth Castle since 1890, this luxury hotel just off the Esplanade in St Helier has played host to royalty and aristocracy. There’s still a hint of the golden age of travel, with porters to take your bag and a concierge on hand to answer questions about where to go and what to see. However, it’s still a thoroughly modern hotel, with a champagne bar, cinema room and soothing spa. The heated indoor pool is complemented by a steam room and sauna, while Elemis treatments include biotec facials and hot-stone massages. After visiting the spa, cocoon yourself in a soft blanket in the low-lit relaxation room. Don’t miss the fine-dining restaurant Tassili, which holds four AA rosettes.
